denon avr 2808ci receiver

  1. Speakers
     I'm a bit of a beginner when it comes to home theater, so I would appreciate a little guidance.  I was an Operations Manager at a large, now-bankrupt consumer electronics retailer, so most of my knowledge and experience was gained during the ~3 years I worked there.  Most of my equipment was...
  2. Xbox Area
    I have my Xbox one outputting to my Denon AVR 2808ci then to my TV. I think everything is working great except that the IR control to the AVR is trying to control Zone 2. When I try to do volume up/down or turn xbox on/off, the AVR is trying to control volume or on/off for zone 2. Could...

    I'm looking to finally buy home theater speakers for my man cave. I currently have a Denon AVR-2808CI hooked up to a pair of Reagan-era home make 3-way speakers (please don't laugh). I was checking out a thread where crazyrob425 and bladerunner6 recommended to a forum member who was looking at...

    Hey all - I swear I had this working at one point - situation is I want to run headphones which need a digital optical input for all sources attached to my 2308ci. The one source I have connected to the receiver via digital optical input passes the audio thru perfectly, but the two sources...

    Simaudio has recently disclosed that their $18,000 CP-8 Pre/Pro was, in practice, a modified $1,199 Denon AVR-2808CI. But, they say this has been well-known for some time… “We don’t hide it. It’s a Denon engine under the hood, and I say it with pride, because it’s reliable and a Denon engine...

     Lightning sent a surge thru my coax just big enough to take out the HDMI ports on ALL my components, Denon 2808, Sharp 60" LCD, and Explorer DVR (that was easy enough to replace for free, from TWcable) I am looking for a used, whole unit: AVR2808CI or AVR988 or just the board "Digital Unit...

    Recently my 2808ci started experiencing sound issues on some TV channels. It does not want to play the voice track. For example, with today's football game I can hear all the stadium sounds but not the announcers. On a different channel we can hear sound effects and the laugh tracks but not the...

    Hello, i'm new here and i'm quite aware that there will already be loads of existing topics on this matter - but I hope you can understand that I just haven't got the time to read them all to find a solution to my problem. So if anyone can redirect me to such a post, i will also be thankful...

    Anyone tried to hook up a dbx 3bx DS into their system? This and my Denon turntable are the only electronics I saved from my old audio system. The 3bx DS was just so great. I'd appreciate any help with setting it up, if possible.

    Was playing a CD at medium volume through the unit in Pure Direct selection and the music sound suddenly stopped. Can't recall if color of light around power operation button changed from solid green. In Pure Direct display is blank. Didn't notice any peculiar smell. Tried restarting by...

    Hi, I have a Samsung LCD TV, Samsung Blue Ray, Apple TV 2, Logitech Harmony remote, and Denon AVR-2808CI. The rig was put together by an AV expert who is no longer in the biz. At some point I attempted some minor configuration changes, and since then nothing has worked. The setup is way to...

     just hooked up the LG BD640 to my Denon AVR-2808CI receiver and the auto switching for audio is no longer working. It worked when the PS3 was connected and a Sony Blu-Ray player. It seems all settings are correct on the LG, but still not sending the signle change to my receiver. Now it only...

    I can get either for roughly the same price, but I'm not 100% sure which would better? I know the 2309 has more HDMI inputs, while the other seems to have more Audio processing capabilities. The 2808 also has a better THD rating (

    My new Denon 2808ci will not output sound from any 2 channel sources; not the CD player, DVR recorder nor playing CD's through the Blu Ray player. In order to get sound, I have to select the "SIMU" button on the remote, then any of the various simulation sound modes will give me sound, but in...
